What your colleagues are saying about the Spring 2004 AACC International Recruitment Trip:

AACC provides well organized recruitment trips that allow community colleges the opportunity to personally meet with Fulbright Commissions, overseas advising centers and U.S. Consulates in order to gain first-hand knowledge about the educational system and prospective student market.  This, in addition, to well-attended college fairs is integral to the success of international recruiting.  Jen Sydow, Scottsdale Community College (AZ)

Participating in the AACC Asia trip was an absolutely amazing experience!  The event was well organized and planned from start to finish.  I would definitely recommend our college participating in future events.  Brad Zuniga, Butte College (CA)

Zepur Solakian and Judy Irwin are tireless advocates on behalf of community colleges.  Their passion and dedication are making a difference in raising awareness both at home and throughout the world about the value and benefits of community college education.  They try to think “outside the box” for ways to bring students and educators together in every city where the fairs are held….This was my first tour with AACC and I found the experience to be very positive.  The group was cohesive and generous to each other and fun!  I would recommend it to other community college colleagues.  Harriet Bloom WilsonNorthwest College (WY)

The organization of the AACC tours is outstanding.  Furthermore, the partnerships that you are developing with overseas educational agencies are imperative for successful recruitment; this is what sets AACC apart from so many other recruitment tours.  Rebecca Grant, Community College of Southern Nevada (NV)
